Information about travelling museums?

Can anyone please help me remember the name of an artist, a woman, I think from the Philippines, who created and carried her own museum? Or similar projects of "mobile/portabe museums/galleries".

There are lots of donkey libraries. In Ethiopia, Columbia, Zimbabwe to name a few.

Museum of Broken Relationships tours around and changes in each location - it's not quite museum-in-a-suitcase though. (I could swear I had bookmarked the one you're describing, but I can't find it.)

Mrs. Thabombsheltersmith went to undergrad art school with a girl who started the IMA Gallery (get it??) It's a travelling, fully functional gallery space (complete with hardwood floors and lights!), that she wears on her person. Very cool, if you ask me.

there's a group in Edmonton that has an ongoing project called The Portable Festival of Portable Art that's worth checking out. even if they don't have anything to do with the Philippines.

Best answer: Are you thinking of Judy Freya Sibayan and her Scapular Gallery Nomad?
